Proud to have been honored for its high standards of excellence by the John Philip Sousa Foundation with the prestigious Sudler Silver Scroll Award, the East Winds Symphonic Band, under the direction of Susan Sands, is passionate about sharing their music with communities all around the Pittsburgh region and beyond. Comprised of approximately 75 serious amateur musicians from all walks of life, and based in the eastern suburbs of Pittsburgh, EWSB has been playing a wide variety of music for over 32 years, including traditional wind band repertoire, marches and classical transcriptions, plus favorites from Broadway, and Hollywood.
